Top 50 Best MLM and Network Marketing Companies of All Time

In this article I will be listing the Top 50 MLM Companies of all time, as I see it.

Where the companies are listed and where they are ranked is entirely my opinion and I don’t expect you to agree with my ranking 100%.

That’s okay.

Also, all names are registered trademarks owned by the respective companies mentioned.

When making this list, here are some of the things I took into account:

  • Annual Revenue
  • Membership in Direct Selling Association
  • Total Years in Business
  • Online Reputation
  • Rating with Better Business Bureau®
  • Size of Product Line

With some of these things, I had to guess.

However, when possible, I have researched each category.

Additionally, I cannot guarantee that you will make any money at all if you choose to look into any of these opportunities.

Individual results will always vary.

That being said, here is my list of the Top 50 MLM and Network Marketing Companies of all time.

As a legal disclosure, I am either a happy customer or wholesale distributor with several of these companies.

    I agree with Amway being the top dog in the MLM world but I think Avon should be second. I just think that Avon is more known than Herbalife is, not to mention the difference in sales. I was also expecting to see Advocare and Oriflame on a much better spot. These are two well known brands that have a lot of followers and distributors, but you said this is your opinion so it doesn’t have to match mine :).

      It can be quite difficult putting any rating together such as this. Personally, I believe Mary Kay should be right near the top. There are also some other ones such as Pampered Chef and as you said Advocare that I believe should be higher on the list…but how exactly the rating is achieved can be in various forms. While one MLM may be huge in one State or country, they may be lower in other locations.

      It would be neat to do a rating by State or country to see. I do know there are a few posts for top MLMs in countries on this site.

    How were the logistics formulated to reach this conclusion? AmWay is huge in Asia, moderate influence at best in other countries. The customer care piece is awful, this is well known, arguing it is moot; especially in China. Ive been involved in 5 companies: JuicePlus is hands down the most satisfying. The product (32 gold standard studies), the company has a solid reputation, and the benefit my customers get is better health. Surprised this was missed..

      This was a guest post on my blog by someone else. Obviously, everyone thinks their own company is number one or should be on the list. If it makes you feel better, my company didn’t make the list either. After all, what factors determine whether or not a company is the top company?

    The best network marketing company is me. All of these companies are very successful. It amazes me how unaware I am of the magnitude and enormity of the network marketing industry. I probably joined a dozen of these companies over the years, but I was not able to become successful despite their success. It is not the company that matters as much as it is the person involved. That said, this is a great list for consideration when contemplating which company to go with. Your effort is not unappreciated or unacknowledged. GREAT WORK CHUCK!!!

      Ultimately, you want to join a company with products or services you are passionate about. And it definitely helps to join an established, reputable company. All that being said, each person is the variant. You can succeed or fail in any company. Ultimately, it’s your skills, work ethic, mindset, and drive that will lead you to success, or failure.

      I don’t sell Herbalife, and I’m not sure if this is a widely known marketing plan, but there are 2 families that have opened fitness clubs. They sell Herbalife in the fitness clubs, and they offer free classes. After people take the classes, a lot of them pay the $7 for a shake, tea, and a shot of aloe vera. They also work with people to get them ready for bikini competitions. I have bought some shakes and shake mixes from them, but I have never taken the classes. I do follow the sisters on Facebook, and they are always posting the before and after pictures. It seems pretty popular.

    What a great article. I have heard of only about half of them, so it was exciting to read about those that I was unfamiliar. Some I was surprised still existed as I never hear about them anymore. I noticed in one of the comments, the writer expects that at some point, the prices of products in MLM’s will decrease. Most products do seem to be pretty pricey. I know the prices are what keeps the commissions in the consultant’s pockets, but selling more product more ofter would be a welcomed change to many, I’m sure.

    There are several companies on this list that I am just not familiar with. It would be nice if you or Ty would explain a bit more about the ones I speak of. Namely:

    Global Information Network
    YTB International
    Market America and
    USANA

    I am just not aware of these. All the others I have heard of. Also, I was wondering if Shaklee is still in business? I just have not heard much out of them.

      Shaklee is very much still in business. Just celebrated 56 years as a corporation. Dr. Shaklee invented the first multivitamin in the US in 1915. Amazing company and benefits, this article didn’t touch on half of what they do or have achieved in the last 30 years.

    One company not on the list is Nerium International. Nerium was recognized for the second year in a row on Direct Selling News’ Global Top 100 List. Last year Nerium was honored as the youngest company to ever make the list. And this year, Nerium jumped from number 86 to number 54 on the list in just one year, continuing its impressive path to the top. In addition, because of Nerium’s impressive growth, they also earned a spot on The Success Partners $100 Million Growth Club. A lot of this success was built on one product in one country. They have since grown to 3 products in three countries and this year will be expanding even further.

    Jeff Olsen left as one of the top earners along with 3 other’s from one of the MLM companies listed above to start Nerium International. Led by an executive team with more than 200 years of collective industry experience, Nerium is committed to developing and distributing skincare products that are rooted in real science, produce real results, and improve consumers’ lives.

    In an effort to fulfill their vision of “Making People Better”, Nerium is devoted to the personal development of their Brand Partners, gives back to the next generation through their Success for Teens initiative, and has partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, raising $1 million last year, making Nerium the largest corporate workplace giving donor. In addition, the company’s compensation plan includes a generous offer to provide Brand Partners with free products for their own personal use or to help them further build their business.

    The products are based on a scientific accidental discovery and are backed by third party clinical trials. The blend of ingredients as well as the extraction process are patented and can’t be duplicated by any other company making the products unique and a perfect fit for a successful MLM company!

    I feel that this MLM company is truly different than the rest. They laid the foundation of an exclusive product, an exceptional back office with integrated mobile technologies, very lucrative and obtainable compensation, a proven and simple relationship marketing system, and giving back programs before they even officially launched the business.

    I would love your opinion too! Thank you for a great website. I have just stumbled across it and am excited to read your amazing books and CDs!

    Thank you.

      Nerium is a great company with great products. This is a guest post from another blogger. I think it’s a great company, but I wouldn’t include it on my own top 50 list simply because it hasn’t been around long enough (not yet anyway). The sales are good, the leadership team is great, and I’m sure in another few years it will be a major player in the industry, if it maintains its current growth.

    Great post.But was a little bit shocked Trevo was not included in the list. Admittedly, it is a new comer but it is a great neutraceutical with 174 ingredients gathered from across the globe, it is certainly in a class of its own. Its health and wellness benefits are outstanding. Go take a look at Trevo

      Trevo is a good company. This was a guest post. I’m not sure how long Trevo has been around so I wouldn’t put it on my own top 50 list. That doesn’t mean it’s not a great company though. As long as you are passionate about the products and the company that’s all that matters. The best MLM company in the world is the one that each one of us represents.

    Ty did a great job making this list.

    I believe that as time goes on, we are going to find MLMs taking over the business world. The advertising costs involved in network marketing are minimal in comparison to traditional business. The advertising is all on the distributors, and in many cases it is free or nearly free.

    I believe network marketing has also caused an influx of competition. In time, we will see the MLM companies bringing their pricing down to be able to compete. This is the ultimate drawback of many MLMs…the pricing.

    The one thing I am wondering is when will we have fast food MLMs-LOL

    Multilevel marketing has changed the marketing concept in the market. This has provided many individuals with an opportunity to collectively make a living. While many joined MLM in an effort to make some extra money while they were committed elsewhere, its development has led to individuals joining even as a full time job. It is important to make the right choice when joining this target market no matter the service or product it aims to market.

    Whereas there are a number of companies in this business, they have all worked to position themselves in the market. Among the top positions is Forever Living Products Company. There is reason why this company is among the top companies in the MLM market and both its marketers and consumers are pleased with the products in the market.

    This brand has helped individuals make a living in two major ways just as with every other multilevel company. This is through the sales of the products and through the sales of the products from individual down lines. The concept that lies here is that teamwork is key.

    As an added advantage, this company is using the aspect of diversification to cater to a larger target market. In this, forever living offers a variety of products ranging from beauty products, household products, to supplement products and much more. In this, if you are looking to get healthier, look and feel better, or simply adopt a green way of completing household tasks, then forever leaving is the company to rely on.

    Unbelievably, it boasts of $2.5 million in annual revenue. It comes with a well distributed network across the globe. The ability to meet a larger target market objective is fulfilling enabling all its marketers market their products across a great number of countries.

    Their products use less chemicals and more natural ingredients. They are known for the use of aloe and bee pollen to produce their products. These products have been known to have both medicinal properties as well as nutritional benefits. The products from Forever Living Company are applicable in your every-day life for every individual. This is one of the reasons why the products have a ready market. It is simply an easier and healthier way of doing practically every task at home. With soaps (cleaning and bathing), and toothpaste as part of their collection, you could say that marketing and selling their products is applicable.

    Another aspect that is holding this company in the top position is that they uphold quality. Everyone is willing to pay for quality products and services. This has not been compromised despite the company’s existence over very many years. In addition, the aspect of affordability comes quite handy. Forever Living products are price friendly and this is helping push the products despite the different and wide target market.

    Multilevel marketing is gaining popularity and there is no doubt that more money is being realized in the business. No doubt, that Forever Living is one of the best MLM companies globally.

    This is a great article on the Top MLM Companies! My favorite on the list has to be #41 Vemma. It seems as if it is growing rapidly, but doing it the correct way. Their products are great nutritional supplements and taste amazing! I know many people who work for Vemma as independent sales consultants. They are never pushy or annoying as some distributors from other companies can be. They are doing great things for young people and helping them earn money by working for themselves.

    Their product speaks for itself. The energy drinks and weight loss supplements have even been featured on the TV Show Extreme Weight Loss on ABC. Trainer Chris Powell is someone who I look up to and have much respect for in the personal training industry. His endorsement as well as the other celebrity endorsements makes me feel safe in purchasing Vemma products. I recently went through a weight loss experience myself, and Vemma products helped me gain energy for workouts and helped me feel full longer in between meals. I love Vemma as a brand as a company. In my opinion, it is one of the best MLM Companies out there.

      Tony, I have to agree with you that Vemma is a great up and coming company. Their CEO has tons of experience in the industry. The products are great.

    There are a lot of great MLM Companies that are impressive in what they are contributing to the world of marketing. Looking through your list, Jessica Herrin’s business Stella and Dot really caught my eye the most. This business stands for empowering women and as a woman, I appreciate people who stand up for what they believe in, especially when Stella and Dot want women to succeed in the world.

    I’ve always been interested in jewelry and accessories that represent my personal style, and this company is into the business of selling jewelry and accessories at trunks shows. They’ve used the term ‘social shopping’ to get people interested in their products, even The Wall Street Journal took an interest. Now that is impressive. Herrin was even recognized for her business in Inc.’s list of the 500 fastest growing businesses. Jessica Herrin is succeeding as a woman in the business world, and that’s why Stella and Dot is my favorite company.

    Network marketing companies have come a long way over the years. The top 50 MLM and network marketing companies have annual revenues that total in the billions.

    We are way beyond proving whether this is a sustainable business model that people can make money with. Today people all over the world start their own MLM businesses, and the #1 company they choose to do that with is Amway.

    Why?

    1. Products. Amway is an industry leader in health supplements with their Nutrilite brand. They also have over 450 high quality products including cosmetics, energy drinks, and basic commodity items as well. These are used and re-ordered which is one of the reasons Amway did $11.8 Billion in sales in 2013.

    2. Worldwide distribution. Amway has factories all around the world which makes it easy for them to supply products in a large number of countries. This has helped them establish regional distribution centers in strategically chosen areas to keep their shipping costs down.

    3. Training. Nobody provides better training to their independent distributors then Amway does. They have long been know for holding rallies and seminars that serve to both motivate and give their members the nuts and bolts of building a successful business.

    4. Self employed. Amway is a leader in direct sales, but the really successful people are those who view themselves as self employed business owners.
    These are the people who go on to build a real business using the network marketing business model. They make money combining retail sales with building a downline of distributors.

    Rich Devos and Jay Van Andel were innovators in establishing a network marketing compensation plan that rewards distributors for moving product through their organization on a monthly basis. This is done through duplication and leveraging your time.

    These are several reasons Amway is the #1 network marketing company in the world. Surprised? You shouldn’t be, as they continue to be industry leaders in the MLM business arena!

    When discussing the top MLM companies Avon is always in the conversation for me. Founded in 1886, Avon Products, Inc. is one of the longer serving MLM companies, and my personal choice as the best MLM company. Now, I am aware they are not the highest grossing MLM company by a long shot, and their current trend seems to be on a slight decline, but this is about my personal overall choice. With that in mind it’s Avon, let’s take a brief look at why.

    History and expansion

    The company was born when a door-to-door book salesman in New York was struggling to make a living back in 1886. His name was David McConnell, and he decided to give selling perfumes a try. That small decision was to change the face of door-to-door sales, not just for him, but countless others to date.

    Today Avon reps are actively selling products in more than 140 countries, the global expansion has been nothing short of incredible. It might come as a surprise to some that USA is not actually Avon’s largest market, that honor goes to Brazil.

    Business model

    I find the Avon business model fascinating. With an emphasis on the female consumer base it’s interesting to see how fast the company grew. Although I am sure you’ll agree that women are a great purchasing customer base, using that niche never slowed the growth.

    There are training centers that help people to become door-to-door Avon sales reps, giving advice on selling techniques and examples of products to look at. Each salesperson becomes responsible for their own business as a sales rep, taking care of their customers and developing a reputation. Although there is a global code of ethics for all salespeople to work to.

    Opportunities

    I like the way Avon (as well as other MLM’s) offer opportunities for almost anyone to empower themselves with the tools to start a business and sell some products. This is why I rate them as the best MLM company when looking over the list of top runners.

    With some enthusiasm and a passion for selling, and helping others, someone can start earning money almost right away. With the earning potential having almost no limit. Obviously selling Avon is not get rich quick scheme, or a way to make easy money. But there have been many publicized success stories of women making a great living from selling Avon products.

    What makes Avon the best MLM company for me?

    It comes down to a lot of factors. I like how Avon has always been directed more to women and women’s products. There is something liberating about empowering women to sell door-to-door for such a long time. They have always had a good product quality control process too, their brand and reputation is strong.

    I certainly hope to see Avon get stronger over the coming years, the MLM market is always changing and the best companies show their authority by making it through the changes. Having been around this long, I expect Avon to be around for many more years to come.

    If you wish to make more money than you ever thought possible, then Neways International is the best company for you. Distributors have the chance to sell quality hair and skin care products to their customers knowing they will be well rewarded when they do. People from around the world have the chance to sell environmentally friendly products knowing they will help them to look and feel healthier throughout their life.

    Every product has been scientifically tested to ensure they do contain petroleum and other toxic chemicals as traditional shampoos do. While it is important to purchase products from top mlm companies, Neways International is by far the best enterprise in the world. People recognize the need to join a good company, that is stable and will be around for a long time.

    The pay structure is generous as it encourages distributors to build their business knowing their income will roll over from one month to the next. Neways International distributors receive bonuses when their friends, family, colleagues and professional acquaintances join the team in the belief they will achieve financial freedom in the long-term. Individuals and couples have the choice to grow their business as quickly or slowly as they wish. Unlike other MLM companies, Neways International provides people with the chance to make a real income they can rely on when they are unable to work or they retire.

    While you can choose any of the top MLM companies to make a steady income, Neways International has the safest, most environmentally friendly products you could ever hope to sell. It is always wise to distribute quality products from the best MLM companies in the United States and Neways International is certainly the most supportive, generous, caring business in the world.

    In conclusion distributors have the chance to make a genuine income while determining how quickly they wish their business to grow.

    When looking at the top MLM companies of all time I’ll bet you did not think of Tupperware! That is understood because if you have ever bought Tupperware in the past you probably did it at a home party where the host made money on your purchase. Tupperware is approaching 70 years in business having started in 1946. They have been around long enough to withstand many changes in how products are sold in the marketplace and they have not only survived, they have thrived.

    Tupperware does close to $2 Billion Dollars in business. There are a couple of main reasons for this.

    1. The Internet. Buying products online such as Tupperware is easier today then it used to be. You do not have to go to a party, place your order, and then wait for the host to come over to your house and deliver it to you.

    2. MLM. You can buy Tupperware from an authorized distributor. This is another reason it is one of the best MLM companies.

    As an MLM business Tupperware is in a unique niche. They are not competing with all of the vitamin and soap companies out there.

    People start their own MLM Tupperware business and operate it independently from other Tupperware and network marketing opportunities.

    There is less competition selling Tupperware. Starting a network marketing business with them gives you the chance to help other people make money with their own niche business.

    This certainly ranks Tupperware in the top of all MLM businesses ever, and maybe it is even the best of all time!

    My parents and uncle were full time in Amway 30 years ago. Today I see many great MLM companies including Tupperware which surprised me. I knew they were a direct sales company, but did not know they were and MLM business.

    I like that Melaleuca got #13 and not #50 or lower. I don’t classify Mela as an MLM. Consumer Direct Marketing, but not an MLM. I know, I know, 7-UP is the uncola and you still have to compare it to the other colas out there, but….just sayin’. Apples and oranges maybe? Love the post though. Keep up the great articles.

    No 4life? Come on you must be joking? Unless you work that program and had to leave them out to eliminate bias?

    I’m not even a distributor with them but i use their products which are amazingly good and they seem like a very stable and good company?

    I would have thought an absolute lay down for top 10?

      This was a guest post on my blog. I did not write the article. 4Life is a great company. I’ve got nothing bad to say about it. Your passion for the company speaks for itself! That is a true testament. Thanks for the comment.

    I agree with the decision to place Avon so near the top of this list. I grew up hearing about Avon. There was always an “Avon Lady” in everyone’s neighborhood when I was growing up. The company is everywhere. I have joined Avon very recently, and have found that the support I need to succeed is there without my even asking for it. My sponsor lives in a different state, but I am already on local Avon network lists, and leaders that I have never even met are reaching out to me with helpful tips and information, and meeting invitations. I have never felt so welcomed by any other company I have worked for in my life.

    This was a great article. I was a little disappointed I did not see Melaleuca in your list. I have been a customer with them for 9 years and I use their products daily. I love the products and what the company stands for.

      You must have moved a bit too fast through the list. Melaleuca is #13. We ran into a bit of a problem with Melaleuca. My wife’s cousin, who has a little problems mentally was put on a monthly ordering in which they would send him products he wasn’t using. He had boxes and boxes of the stuff and his bank account was getting zapped. It took a lot of pressure from me to get the company to realize they were taking advantage of a partially retarded person. I don’t put the blame on the company, but on the rep. I still think they do have good products.

    Thanks Chuck! Believe it or not Excel Communications did make the list at first! I debated because it is now defunct, but I think it was a great one. When it comes to MLM, there really is ‘something for everyone’. The 50 companies listed are just the tip of the iceberg. The companies that were left off are proof of that. Most people think of the ones they know, they have no idea that MLM is more than about Tupperware and make-up, but communications, technology, utilities, products designed to improve you health and lifestyle.

    This is really a great post, Ty. I can tell you put a lot of effort into writing this.

    The only companies that I do not see on this list, that I think should be on the list, are: Thirty-One, 4Life, NSA Juice Plus, Nature’s Sunshine and Excel Communications.

    Excel is no longer around, but it was a mighty giant for many years. The other three companies all do close to a billion dollars a year or more.

    In either case, great job.

      Wanted asking, the company GNLD/Neo-Life, how reputable is it? Would really appreciate your feedback Chuck if one should join them as a distributor.
      Regards.
